It was a spectacular to day to be in the mountains and take a stroll around Snowflake Lake after brunch.

It was a spectacular day in the mountains on Sunday for the start of the first Sew'n Wild Oaks retreat of the year at Snowflake Lodge.
The girls have a wonderfully large workspace so they can spread their projects out.
We left the Lodge at 5:00 and headed to my cabin for our appetizer dinner. The weather was warm enough to eat outside.....for a little while.
This morning we will gather together at 8am and I'll start teaching around 9. Brunch will be around 10. We will quilt, laugh, eat, walk around the lake and repeat the entire process throughout the day. Sew much fun!

I've been busy here under the pines at Sew'n Wild Oaks. My first retreat of the year begins on Sunday. The project for all of the retreats this year is my Calico Cottages pattern. I've been making more of these addicting cottages using my fabric collection called HEARTHSTONE by Marcus Fabrics. The line will be out this summer.
I put a new tutorial together which you can download and print. You can find the tutorial by clicking HERE. The tutorial walks you through the assembly of the roof section of the cottage. Once you 'nail down' the process for the roof, the same technique applies to all of the other sections of the cottage.

Happy Easter to everyone! We are getting ready to head out to an Easter brunch at our homeowner's association. The bottomless Mimosas were the hook to get us to go! I can't remember an Easter where I haven't been in the kitchen fixing brunch for us. It is a nice change of pace.
I finally let her have a glass of wine when she finished her perfect pinwheels.
